    Research Interests

    Physical and Mechanical Metallurgy of Light Alloy Materials:Our research focuses on light alloys with particular emphasis on preparation and processing by experiments and modeling.1) Al-Si alloys such as A380 is widely used high pressure die casting alloy; however, it suffers from corrosion problem in the auto industrial applications.The research is to develop high strength and corrosion resistant HPDC Al-Si alloys.2) For Ti alloys we study the transformation-mismatch superplasticity at low external stress through thermal cycling around α/β phase transformation.3) With regard to Mg-RE alloys, we study the deformation mechanism at elevated temperature and their possible applications for engine piston.

  • Kaixue Wang

    Kaixue Wang, born in 1974, is currently a professor in Department of Chemistry at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China. He received his PhD degree at Jilin University in 2002, supervised by Prof. Ruren Xu, Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences. His first postdoctoral position was at the University College Cork, Ireland, under the supervision of Dr. J. D. Holmes, where he developed a dual template way for the preparation of mesoporous nanotubes and nanofibres and also demonstrated that supercritical fluid treatment is efficient in improving the thermal stability and hydrothermal stability of mesoporous materials. 

    In 2007, Dr Wang took up a JSPS research position in Energy Technology Research Institute at National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Tsukuba, Japan, under the supervision of Professor H. S. Zhou, where he researched the application of nanoscale and porous materials in energy storage devices. Since joining the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at SJTU in November 2008, he has established an active research group in the synthesis and assembly of nanoscale and porous materials for energy storage, photocatalytic and photovoltaic applications. He has been published more than 130 papers in world recognized journals such as Angew. Chem., Adv. Mater., Nano Lett., Adv. Funct. Mater., Adv. Energy Mater., and ACS Nano. 

    He received many awards, including 1st Prize for Natural Science of Shanghai (the 3rd awardee) in 2015, Shanghai Shuguang Scholarship in 2014, Shanghai Pujiang Scholarship in 2009, and JSPS Scholarship in 2007. He was the Principal Investigator in the New Century Talents Project from the Ministry of Education in 2012.
